PAY: Expenses
FOR: Knighton Community Woodlands Group

Knighton Community Woodlands Group (KCWG) is local people coming together to learn and share woodland skills, and to use those skills for the benefit of wildlife and our members. We need to become more financially self-sufficient through sales and so need to establish what the potential local market is for woodland products such as charcoal, bean poles, pea sticks and hedging stakes. We are seeking a volunteer for a few hours each week who will contact local retailers to find out if they would be willing to stock these items and the level of stock that they would require. This opportunity would allow you to work from home and set your own hours. You would need to travel to local vendors as required.
